A New Home for Events
After years of presenting memorable musical events at Darnton & Hersh, we are excited to announce that future events will be under the auspices of Guarneri Hall NFP, a new not-for-profit classical music incubator whose home is a newly constructed, acoustically engineered and technologically advanced 85-seat performance space on the third floor at 11 East Adams in Chicago's Loop. Guarneri Hall NFP serves as a facilitator and catalyst for emerging musical artists, musical groups and music education initiatives.
The archive of past Darnton & Hersh events will remain on this website.
